I always feed freese dried blood worms to my bettas as well. Just cut down on the amount you are feeding. If he is leaving some long enough to grown fungus then there is just too much food in the tank. It only takes a very tiny amount (maybe 3 to 4 worms at most).

Also, anything he doesn't eat, take out of the tank.

What size tank is your betta in? If he is in a big enough tank I would suggest 3 cories. More than likely any shrimp you put in the tank will likely be eaten by the betta.
